11:16 pm
that snowmageddon stuff. i don't think so. you go with the trend. the trend tonight is one of very light systems moving through and there's a little piece of one trying to move through tonight, too a clipper that's mostly falling apart over the mountains, but it has managed to get a little closer tonight. we'll start with a look at sentinel radar to show you that there are some patches of flurries or very light sprinkles. this is not going to cause any problems. i'll put it in motion. you can see it is tracking mostly across maryland, light stuff to be sure and as we get in closer, it looks like it might be in the form of sprinkles or sleet especially around winchester and front royal. these will pass through overnight. i don't expect them to be around in the morning. a little chunk of that breaking off, but notice over the mountains it's shrinking. it won't get into town. we'll have some cloud overnight. by morning i -- clouds overnight. by morning i think we'll get breaks in the overcast and a
11:17 pm
sunny day tomorrow. cool today, average 45 degrees, but we're gaining daylight like crazy, sun not going down now till about 5:35. bwi and thurgood marshall did not get up to 40 degrees, but i think they will tomorrow. nashville 64, st. louis at 57, atlanta 62, warmer air trying to get in here sunday till wednesday or so. the cold air which will kind of linger this week across the northeast and promotes the fast moving clippers that ride along the jet stream will eventually recede and some of that mild air to the south and southeast is going to try to make a run at us into the sunday time period and especially monday through wednesday of next week. it's looking pretty mild. in between as we transition from cold to warm we might cook up a pretty good storm in the thursday/ friday time frame. it will be mostly rain, but when it begins it could be a wintery mix thursday night around 11:00 or 12:00.
11:18 pm
it could be a tricky forecast. not too tricky tonight, 37 degrees with clouds and just a few passing flurries, 32 down toward the culpeper area and warrenton, went 7 pittsburgh, 25 bingham -- 27 pittsburgh, 25 binghamton, raleigh 32 degrees. overnight not bitterly cold, a few mid- to upper 20s to 32 degrees in the district. our wednesday won't start out too terribly cold, a couple flurries floating around later tonight and mostly clouds, tomorrow 45 degrees, early clouds, a bit of a breeze during the day but overall i think it will be a pretty nice day and it will be nice to have the sunshine back, won't it? temperatures low to mid-40s, maybe upper 30s farther north and west including hagerstown 35, frederick 37, baltimore 39 degrees and out toward annapolis 40 degrees. at the surface it will be high pressure that keeps us cool tomorrow, but it also keeps us sunny. your fox 5 accuweather seven-
11:19 pm
day forecast, 42 thursday, most of thursday is dry, any moisture thursday night into friday and we'll say an early mix is possible before it changes to rain for most areas. saturday about 43 and then quite a different story for sunday. we jump all the way up to 51 degrees and keep it in the mid- 50s monday and tuesday with more showers expected monday. that's it for weather. i know caps were in town again. let's see how they did. here's scott smith sports. the caps and leafs met five days ago. toronto got the win 3-2. tonight the two clashed again and for the first time this season a repeat opponent for the caps, an opportunity for the struggling team to show improvement being made. the verizon center for the rematch. 1st period michal neuvirth and tom poti miscommunication. first of two goals tonight. later in the 1st period the caps on a power play trailing 2 -0. behind the night it's passed
11:20 pm
out to marcus johansson who nets his first of the year 2-1. 2nd period still 2-1, leafs feeding the rookie and his shot on neuvirth, first career goal. toronto 3-1. 3rd period caps on a power play, alex ovechkin to troy brouwer to mike ribeiro who scores his third goal of the year to cut the deficit to 3-2 , but that's how it end. caps fall to 2-7-1 on the season through 10 games. >> that's a tough one tonight because the way we played the other night i thought for sure we were going to have a good effort tonight. we did have the effort. it kind of deflates you when you make a mistake like that early in the game. the wizards have played well against good teams to date defeating four division leaders. tomorrow night they host the new york knicks. last night they topped the clippers 98-90, five guys in double figures. martell webster led the way
11:21 pm
with 21, the wiz's first victory over the clips in nine games. makes you wonder where they'd be if john wall of healthy to start the season. they are 7-7 since his return january 12th which is the eighth best record in the east since then. >> since everybody got back healthy and since i came back, a lot of teams start respecting us more and knowing that we're capable of doing a lot of things. we're one of the top 10 in defense i think in the league. so we just got to keep working and once we stick away from holding onto the ball and try to go one on one, we're a better team and trust each other and having a different person leading in scoring of night. the ravens took to the streets in baltimore today, the super bowl victory parade next. ♪ wow.
